Lashana Lynch to become the first woman to play Agent Bond 007

Lashana Lynch Confirms She’ll Play 007 in No Time to Die The actress will appear alongside Daniel Craig in a role she calls “very, very revolutionary.” Now, in a new interview with   Harper’s Bazaar UK, Lynch has confirmed that she will indeed be the first Black woman to take on the title of 007. Lynch told the magazine how she prepped herself emotionally for what would be the inevitable and horrible backlash. She unplugged from social media and reminded herself that the disgusting comments were not about her personally. “I am one Black woman—if it were another Black woman cast in the role, it would have been the same conversation, she would have got the same attacks, the same abuse,” she said. “I just have to remind myself that the conversation is happening and that I’m a part of something that will be very, very revolutionary.”
